Ah more time you done know say
Well traditionally you know say
Selasie I, oh Lord
Well, make dem know Babylon while you spread you spill
Can't take our own uno better be still

What we don't have every ghetto youth will
And lef' and go 'cause you gonna draw nil

True dem waan da ghetto youth dem fi go down the drain
The mark of da beast the whole ah dem a proclaim
Babylon a use dem brain
Babylon a use dem brain

To see my black brother goin? all down the drain
Dey rape mi mommy mi sister I say oh what a shame
Brother and mi father afi chop sugar cane
Pon dem hand, pon dem foot I just see shackles and chains

Now the youths dem realize and shout the hailie hailie name
One thing is our desire one thing is our aim

What we don't have every ghetto youth will
And lef' and go 'cause you gonna get nil

Could dem ah come with dem kit jus to take every bit
But our share you won't be living wit
I tell dem how could dem cadet go down practice
Ey ey ey you've not been kind

Nothing ah touch it ?cause ah mine
Babylon a use dem brain
Babylon a use dem brain

Dem only fight against herb and dem a shipping cocaine
Well, dem you know say bad mind dem ah go burn in tha flame
Well, this is one thing I cannot over stand
Inna the school and the college and the institution

Nah teach me nothin' 'bout the river Nile bank
You say thou shall not steal and should not kill no one
Still you steal treacheries and then you teach wrong
But wicked Babylonian and you will love to burn

Ah causin' dispute makin' us their plan
Competin' this is more than competition
Could that dem fightin' just to enslave black man
And who is you no one takes any instruction
